Tired of Your Phone? Exchange Your Old Smartphone For Brand New One

New phones come with a great feeling. Be it a Blackberry, Tecno, Infinix, Samsung, Asus, iPhone or any of those numerous brands out there, you feel it’s the magical device that answers all your prayers. But two years later you can’t even pay someone to steal your old smartphone from you. Then, that yearning creeps in; the desire for a new and possibly, a shiny, top-of-the-line device. Do you know that you can simply exchange, swap, or trade-in your old phone to get a brand new device in Nigeria? 

Sometime last year, Nigerian leading phone retailer,  Slot  Systems Limited in partnership with Matrix Certified Pre-Owned Nigeria Limited, a leading name in pre-owned devices  launched a “trade-in” program to enable customers trade-in their old phones for brand new ones. This was followed by MTN Nigeria with the Matrix Trade-in services.

There are several reasons to exchange, swap, or trade-in your old smartphone to get a brand new device. You have done your best possible to preserve your phone’s newness for as long as possible. You did everything you could to protect it from rain, scratches, spills, thieves, children, and careless friends.

But a couple years in, your once-beautiful phone is now a mass of scratches, dings, and dents, and you’re counting down the days until you can trade it in for a newer model. You no longer bother with the bulletproof case—or any case at all—and you could care less if your phone falls in the toilet.

Also, Google launched it’s latest mobile operating system, Nougat but old phones will never know what it feels. Not to mention tons of apps which are available on Google store and other marketplaces that do not support versions old phones are running on. Now, the question is how to exchange your old phone for a brand new one?
